Mars conjunction Uranus occurs on February 27 2017. It is a sizzling combination that produces excitement, fireworks and electricity. It is a person who loves to shock. The native may even literally shock others unintentionally as they tend to be live wires. Even if they are mild mannered on the outside, inside they are fizzling ball of energy. Mars conjunction Uranus jump easily if you suddenly walk into a room.
The native spooks easily because although their body may have been present, by their mind was in another galaxy entirely. The bump back down to earth can be quite a jolt. These folk tend to be ‘spaced-out’ a good deal of the time and find it hard to earth themselves. The theme of feeling alienated and aliens seems to come up strongly with these folks.
Mars conjunction Uranus is fascinated with the sky and loves to be in the clouds, at some speed! So they adore flying, roller coasters or skiing at high altitudes. The native also likes futuristic skyscrapers and the view from the penthouse suite.
Rising to the very top of anything really fast, turns them on. Uranians are visionaries who see the big picture, but Mars adds the turbo charge to push them to the upper limits.
The biggest problem with Mars conjunction Uranus though is impatience. They want success, but they want it yesterday. This can mean that these folk only ever become the one-hit-wonders or flash in the pans. Partnership with earthy, careful types is needed to give Mars/Uranus longevity. (Unless they have other more grounded, slower-paced elements elsewhere in their chart.)
Another text book association with this combination is accidents, with knives most commonly. Much depends on the sign. For example: This conjunction in Aries it is daring (with Mars strong in the sign it rules) and therefore more physically dangerous. While in Aquarius the daredevil will manifest in ‘spaced-out’ ideas.
Mars conjunct Uranus makes freedom fighters and activists. It will campaign for liberation in all forms, but probably mostly in the area of sexuality. This does not mean these people are necessarily permissive sexually, especially if they are religious, it’s just the principle of the matter. Generally though, these folk are very open-minded and tolerant of other people peccadillos in the bedroom.
Mars conjunct Uranus find sex interesting on an intellectual level, and most of their foreplay is mental. Mars/Uranus are extremists one way or another however. Some run through the whole spectrum of the LGBTQ scale (including some letters we don’t even know yet…) while others are totally celibate and asexual. There is even a certain amount of frigidity with this aspect. Technology is big too of course, so there is a danger that these folk could get quite addicted to porn on the internet.
Cyber sex is another way these natives can become insensitive to real flesh-and-blood orgasms. Mars/Uranus can so easily dissociate from live relationships that they can become enamoured by mechanical objects. They adore high-tech gadgetry, but there is the danger of video game addiction. Others fall in love with their smartphones (Or get pulling into endless sexting on dating apps.)
Mars Conjunct Uranus Natives
Robin Williams started his career in stand-up comedy and was known for his quick fire Mars/Uranus improvisation skills. Williams eventually rose to fame as an actual alien in the hit TV series ‘Mork & Mindy’. At college his classmate and fellow actor Christopher Reeve said of Williams that he “talked a mile a minute. I’d never seen so much energy contained in one person. He was like an untied balloon that had been inflated and immediately released… To say that he was “on” would be a major understatement”.
The stress of stand up comedy took its toll on Williams, who was wired enough anyway without taking drugs on top of this dynamite conjunction. “Some, such as the critic Vincent Canby, were concerned that his monologues were so intense that it seemed as though at any minute his “creative process could reverse into a complete meltdown”.His biographer Emily Herbert described his “intense, utterly manic style of stand-up [which sometimes] defies analysis ..” ~ Wiki
Uranus can be associated with mental illness and genius at the same time. Mars was Robin Williams ruling planet, so this conjunction is all the more personal for him. Robin Williams embodies Mars/Uranus with the conjunction falling in lunar-ruled Cancer and trined by a sensitive Pisces Moon no less. Williams then, was a ‘lunatic’ in the best sense of the word.

Williams throughout his life had addiction problems to cocaine and alcohol. Later on he had health problems, Susan Scheider says “he suffered from paranoia, delusions and looping, insomnia, memory, and high cortisol levels. According to Schneider, “Robin was losing his mind and he was aware of it … He kept saying, ‘I just want to reboot my brain.”. Williams committed suicide by hanging himself in 2014. According to the autopsy, Williams was suffering from a form of dementia, his Mars/Uranus, live-wire brain simply burnt out.
